Monday–  Comprehension extract sheet

 Comprehension questions



What is a simile? Explore examples – can children think of common similes they might have heard before? What is a metaphor? Explore examples – can children think of any metaphors?  Discuss and write some examples. Read and sort the metaphors and similes. List is attached below.


Imagine you are Oliver looking out of your bedroom window, write 3 similes and 3 metaphors to help describe what you can see. Loom video attached.


metaphors and list of similes


Recap details from Oliver and the Seawigs – Oliver is travelling across the bay on a moving island. We are going to use our descriptive skills to describe the setting using all the senses while Oliver is travelling on the island. Watch the video clips and children collect a range of verbs/adverbs/adjectives and general phrases linking to moving across the ocean.  Use all five senses if you can. A collection of relevant vocabulary is attached along with a sheet to separate verbs, adjectives and adverbs.

Task is to watch the attached video links and building on the work done in the previous two days, children write a description of the seawig island moving across the ocean. Children use ideas from previous lessons to help them write descriptive sentences. Encourage children to use thesaurus, look at the videos, use dictionaries and refer back to previous lessons. Loom link and example to follow later in week.

Share your Scarf week!


Each day of Share your Scarf week we’re thinking about one of the SCARF letters.

Today is Caring day!

Copy the C for Caring onto paper or card – an old cereal packet will do – or print it. Then let your imagination go wild! All around and inside your letter C, draw and write about kind and caring things we can do.

Ideas to get you started…

  1. What things can you do to care for yourself?
  2. What things do people in your life do to care for you?
  3. How could you show that you care about my special people?
  4. How do you feel when you’ve done something caring for someone?

Share your scarf!

Display your C for Caring poster for everyone to see. Maybe even stick it in a window to share it with your neighbours – remember to check with a grown-up at home, first!

With help from a grown-up at home, or a teacher at school, would love you to share your finished poster each day on our Facebook page – or you can email  cle@coram.org.uk

There’s a different letter each day for you to share with others. By the end of the week, you’ll be sharing your whole SCARF!

Who has power and authority in the lives of children?

e.g. Parents, teachers, policemen, politicians, the Queen!

Who gave these people their power and authority? How do they show their authority?

Do we always obey them? Why? Why not?   

What is the difference between the authority of these people and Jesus’ authority?
What have you learned from this unit that you didn’t know before? Have you been inspired by anything or anybody they have studied?
